        Research Interests

          Sen has research interests in three areas. His theoretical and methodological research interests are in: Nonparametrics with special emphasis on multivariate nonparametric methods and sequential nonparametrics; robustness of statistical procedures in linear models; sequential estimation; decision theoretic problems in statistical inference. survival analysis; asymptotic methods.

          His application-oriented research interests include: Statistical bioassays, longitudinal studies and growth curve models; clinical trials and time-sequential analysis; resampling methods with special emphasis on jackknifing and bootstrapping.

          His interests in purely applied research include statistical considerations in arteriosclerosis problems, molecular genetics, genotoxicity and bioenvironmental statistics.
